In vitro effect of antibiotics against preformed biofilm by S. pseudintermedius strain DSM 25713. Biofilms allowed to form following 48 h-incubation were exposed for further 24 h to each antibiotic at concentrations equal or multiple of MIC. Results are expressed as percentage of biofilm’s viability – as assessed by viable colony count - compared to control (unexposed, 100 % viability) (n = 6). The dotted line indicates a reduction in biofilm viability of at least 20 % vs control (p < 0.001, chi-square test)
